We invite you to a silent retreat with Jeff Foster at the beautiful Earthspirit Centre near Glastonbury, Somerset, UK, in September 2013....
THE DEEPEST ACCEPTANCE:
DISCOVERING AN EFFORTLESS "YES" TO LIFE
MONDAY 16th - FRIDAY 20th SEPTEMBER 2013
A 4-NIGHT SILENT RETREAT WITH JEFF FOSTER IN GLASTONBURY
This is Jeff's first silent retreat in the UK. You will be invited to stay silent inbetween meetings with Jeff.
Through talks, guided meditations, intimate dialogues, laughter, tears and deep silence, Jeff Foster invites us to take a fresh look at our present experience and discover the ocean of who we really are: a non-dual awareness that has already allowed every wave of thought and emotion to arrive. “Just as the ocean ‘accepts’ every wave,” teaches Jeff, “so too has our awareness already allowed and accepted what is here.” Jeff talks of deep acceptance not as a passive surrender, but as an intelligent and creative emerging into life just as it is. And it is not something that happens “one day”, or only happens to special people – it is always happening, if we have eyes to see it.
Recognizing ourselves as the ocean of deep acceptance radically transforms and simplifies the way we see the world - our relationships, how we communicate, our attitude towards physical pain and depression, how we deal with addictions, and our search for spiritual enlightenment. Candid, thoughtful, humorous—and deeply compassionate toward those searching for a way out of suffering—Jeff inspires us to stop trying to “do” acceptance…and start falling in love with “what has already been allowed.” His simple, accessible and direct teachings point us back to who we really are in this moment – already perfect, whole, and free.
Dates and Times: From 6pm Monday 16 September. The retreat will end at 4pm Friday 20th September.
